Just grabbed a used M3 conv. and need some help and advice

I just grabbed a used 2011 M3 conv. and will be receiving it hopefully within two weeks (it's being shipped to me). It didn't come with the stock 19" wheels so I was hoping someone would be able to help me identify these and some other parts such as the carbon fiber lip and spoiler and those LED strips and purple angels. There's also a bunch of cf parts inside.

I am probably going to ditch the wheels and lip. Thanks!

Purple angel eyes? Weird.

Someone sunk about $80K+ into that car. Hope you got a good deal!

The lip looks like it is a Hamann piece or a replica thereof (see http://www.hamann-motorsport.com/en/.../aerodynamics/).

I paid 68k, plus doc fees which will be just over a few hundred bucks. It has 4k something miles on it and supposedly mint. I think the dealership had to fix two minor dings on it, but no curb rash etc. The guy who used to own it supposedly brought it in to trade for a 2011 R8 spyder! MSRP on this was $84,555. I'm not familiar with what kind of discounts people get on these.

The purple angels, cf lip and LED strips are gone for sure (free to anyone who wants to pick them up from my house). I looking to find someone who likes the wheels so I can either sell them or trade for something I like.

Yeah, according to everything I've been looking around for, for the past few weeks, I thought I got a pretty good deal. I did read about an example where someone got something similar for as low as 57!

About the lip, I will wait until I actually get the car in-hand before I decide what to do. If it looks OK, I might leave it. If not, if someone local comes to pick it up, they can have it. The only thing I'd be worried about is if leaves a bunch of drilled holes under the bumper or if it'll be missing some stock clips or something. If that's the case, I'd rather trade front bumpers with someone who has the same color.

I'd probably be open to trading the wheels with someone who has the 19' stock ones in mint condition too.

Lip is hamman, most likely a replica though.

LED strips are some generic pep boys junk.

Carbon steering wheel trim is generic again but you'll have to buy a $100 stock peice or trade for it.

Trim is OEM BMW which is widely regarded as the nicest you can get. It's not real carbon but ultra high quality leather with a carbon pattern printed on it.

It looks like the owner also replaced the orange reflectors with some generic graphite or carbon reflectors on the front bumper.

The wheels look cheap and generic, no idea who makes them.

Here's another pic of the lip and strips and purple halos.

Thanks for all the help guys! Axis Penta's look pretty much spot on, except I'll wait till the car gets here to confirm. I wouldn't know where to start to look but I guess if the car was in front of me, it'd be much easier.

I look forward to this car and from all the cars I've been wanting to buy for the past month or so, the M3 seemed to be the best balance of everything. I'd rather have the sedan since I have kids, but this one came up and I knew it was a 'better deal' so grabbed it instead.
